nonprofit to help people out of a jam

Hey folks, I have a memory of a non-profit that offered small loans (like under $1000) to people to help them get out of trouble.

The funds may have been crowdfunded like Kiva. I'm pretty sure I heard about it on AskMe. Ring any bells for anyone? It's tough to google.

It's great to hit the (y new) link and bounce directly to fresh content identified just for you based on your past history with that thread. Adding this functionality to Recent Activities would improve that page's usefulness under many common scenarios. [more inside]

Hazlitt's love letter to MetaFilter

The Internet’s First Family by Stephen Thomas at Hazlitt takes a "historical" (recent history that is!) view of MetaFilter. Don't go all gooey when you read it. via Phire's tweet
